One of the most popular hobby diversions for hockey collectors is back again and the 2017-18 Panini NHL Sticker Collection is expected to hit stores once the next season is ready to begin this Fall.
Expect to find many of the best and brightest moments of the current season to be featured and every NHL team will be well-represented within the 72-page album which houses nearly 500 stickers.
Like previous editions, the 2017-18 Panini NHL Sticker Collection will also feature the always-popular foil stickers. There will be over 100 of them to track down and most seven-sticker packs tend to have at least one inside.
As for the album’s contents, look for two pages for each NHL team plus coverage of Award Winners, the 2017 NHL All-Star Game, the 2017 NHL Entry Draft, and the 2017 Stanley Cup Playoffs.
It should also be expected that Panini America will once again offer collectors a chance to purchase individual stickers via an offer that is printed on the back cover of the album. This is a tradition that goes back decades for hockey sticker albums and is a perfect way to finish the set after going through a pile of packets.
Boxes of 2017-18 Panini NHL Sticker Collection will contain 50 packs that have a suggested retail price of $1.00 each. The albums will sell for $2.00 and come 12 per box. Retailers can also order Sticker & Album Combo Displays which have 20 albums along with 100 packs of stickers.
Once an image for the 2017-18 Panini NHL Sticker Collection album is available, we will provide it here.
